There was an error while downloading guide data and creating the mxf file. Take a look at the log file prior to 3am and look for where the [ERROR] is coming from.

I am certainly unsure that this is an EPG123 bug but, starting a few weeks back, I have been having intermittent tuner recording failures, and they seem to only occur when a scheduled recordings coincide with watching a recorded program in WMC. I have two tuner cards (a Hauppauge Hvr 4400 dual tuner DVD-T + DVD-S2, and a TBS 6280 dual tuner 2x DVD-T2). These two tuner cards have been working happily together on my Win7x64 system since 2014.
If I schedule four simultaneous TV recordings, and the WMC program is closed, then all four will record OK, but if I have WMC open then I will likely get either a “no signal on TV channel”, or an unexpected tuner error (code 0xC0040524 or 1073478364). This will invariably occur on the TBS 6280 tuners (although I have occasionally had a “no TV signal” on the Hauppauge). Attempting to view live TV on the failed tuner will usually result in a “No TV signal” or “Tuner not present” message. Rebooting the PC brings everything back to normal. Even a period of sleep seems to fix the tuners.
This looks to me like a software conflict of some sort, or perhaps a corruption in a database. I don’t think anything much has changed on the software front to cause this, and I have tried rebuilding the WMC database in the EPG123 client (v1.6.3.0), but this doesn’t seem to help, and I am wondering what sanity checks, if any, the EPG123 client does on the database when it is rebuilt.
It could be that the TBS 6280 card is failing, and so I am considering replacing both cards with a single multi-channel tuner card (e.g. a Hauppauge HVR-5525 6-in-1), but the hassle of doing a complete terrestrial and satellite retune is a bit of a disincentive!

Nothing epg123 can interfere with. This sounds like a driver/hardware/WMC issue. EPG123 just creates the guide listings in file format. The mxf file is then imported by a WMC executable and everything is done. Simplistic description but pretty close to the mark.

There is no sanity check for a database rebuild. WMC periodically will create backups of the tuner setups, WMC configurations, and recording requests. A database rebuild simply deletes the current database and uses those backups to start a fresh database with all the above restored.

Gary, thanks. That is what I presumed was the case, but I thought I would check, and also describe the problem here in case anyone else on the forum has experienced a similar issue. It looks like a new tuner card and a complete retune beckons! Steve

I've been getting this same error as koberhol for several days now, every time it tries to do the daily update. If I do a manual update afterward, it works fine. The full log from today's failed automatic update is below, followed by the successful manual update. Any idea what's going on?

Everything looks fine from an EPG123 standpoint. The original error was that it failed to download a station logo for a new? station. When you manually ran it, it was successful. This error should have really been reduced to an INFO since it doesn't impact the content or accuracy of the guide data. I need to do a complete review of all my logging of INFO, WARNG, and ERROR to make sure they are assigned an appropriate level.

If when referencing koberhol's problems with No Signal Available, or something like that, then again... EPG123 is only providing the guide. If there are any tuner related problems, then it is most likely related to the hardware, drivers, or WMC tuner setup. EPG123 does not add/remove/edit/control how WMC interacts with the tuners.

Oh, no, I haven't had anything along those lines, thankfully, just the guide error. I may have misunderstood what was causing koberhol's problem. Anyway, hopefully it's just a transient issue!

I've been getting guide failures for a few days now. It looks like some sort of Schedules Direct problem, but I am not sure what to do next. Any advice would be appreciated.

Try changing the time for your guide update.
Do not choose the top of the hour, the bottom of the hour, and the quarter hours especially during the overnight hours around midnight +/- 4 hours. Plus on the East Coast and minus on the West. This seems to be the busiest times for SD and they are probably being overload.

Just wanted to report that my guide data has updated properly three days in a row now, so the earlier problems were indeed transient.

All right, you all convinced me. There is now an option from the notification tray to "Notify on ERRORs only" and will default to 'true'.
I noticed side-effect of this option. If you run Media Center full screen 24/7, the notification waits until there is user activity at the desktop before popping. So if there has been an error a few days ago, but all is now fine, you still get the error pop-up even though the icon is green.

I am not sure if it is useful or not to know that there was an error. But if you have all notifications turned on, I think it only pops the latest message which in this case would be about the more recent successful update.

I use the portable version.
I have been using epg123 since it was created.
I use the XMLTV output for a number of DVR software testing - Emby, NextPVR etc
I was using 1.6.3.1 without issue, upgraded to 1.6.4.1 - After which I began seeing issues with images. Specifically Emby V4.6.0.39/40 - When looking at the scheduled recordings page these images (posters) some were "Zoomed" in. It seemed that evry day after guide update more of these images became "zoomed".
I switched back to epg123 v1.6.3.1 and the problem with the images being "zoomed" was resolved.
So my question - Is this a bug? or Is there a new/different setting between 1.6.3.1 & 1.6.4.1 that I may have incorrect? I didn't change any setting in 1.6.4.1 so??
Thanks for any help/info!

Not sure if it is related, but Gary talked about a new feature to get 16x9 images here, although it is the release you are saying you are not having an issue with. Perhaps this option was made the default in the later version? See if there is an option to disable 16x9 images in the settings.

I'm running tests right now on the xmltv generation and not seeing a problem with the next release code. Each program icon should have a height/width value in the xmltv and emby uses those values to determine which image to present on whichever page you are on. I use emby daily myself and saw last night that it presented a 16x9 image in a 2x3 frame, which I thought was odd.

For other consumers of xmltv, the image selected can be the first or last so it can appear random. The next release is sorting the images by width so the sequence will be 2x3, 3x4, 4x3, and 16x9 so even if the consumer selects first/last, the results should be pretty consistent.

I'm going to be releasing a new version soon so would appreciate it if you check it out. I've done a lot of restructuring and cleaning up the chad accumulated over 5 years of added options and capabilities.

Yeah it might be a 16x9 image that I was seeing. I will check out the new update to see how it looks.

Thank you. I will take a closer look at the settings with the next update - They "looked" like they were the same and 2x3 was checked in both 1.6.3.1&1.6.4.1 but I will take a look!

The 2x3 option up to this point was only WMC unless you also selected the xmltv option to not include additional image formats. Up until I added that option, the xmltv file would always contain all available aspect ratio images.

Since you created the XMLTV option (Thanks again!) that is all I have used. I have also been using the slim option (Again Thanks!) since I updated to the version that had that (I missed quite a few updates there for awhile).

Just released version 1.6.4.2. This should make things consistent. I think I noticed on previous versions that when the slim option for the images was selected, it would publish the first image for the series rather than the desired format. That is probably where the oddity came from. This version should fix that.

Yah, one of the complaints I would see every once in a while was that xmltv files from epg123 were too big so I gave the option. Taking out all the cast & crew and extra images drops the size quite a bit.

Okay - Updated to 1.6.4.2, verified the settings were as before. So far the "zoomed" or 16x9 issue has not reappeared in Emby. I will keep a close eye on it for the next few days but so far all is good.
